In 10 days, Samsung will unveil a slew of new products including the next lineup of Galaxy foldables, the Galaxy Buds 2, and the Galaxy Watch 4 series. Until now, we’ve seen leaked renders and GIFs showing off some of what the interface will look like. Today, 91mobiles has revealed a couple of the first real-world images of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
As expected, these images come from an “anonymous” source and they show off the black and silver color variants. But from these images, you can see that Samsung will be integrating two buttons on the right side. Instead of the pronounced buttons that look more like they are from a standard watch, Samsung is opting for flattened buttons.
The images also give us a tiny glimpse of the interface, but this is limited to the start up screen and the “Set time” screen. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting to see what this final version of One UI Wear looks like, based on the all-new Wear OS 3 from Google and Samsung. Some have suggested that the interface will look more like the now-defunct Tizen, and less like what we had with Wear OS in years past.
Finally, the images give us a look at the new bands that are expected to come. This are likely to still be easily swappable, but Samsung’s bands blend into the casing, providing a seamless transition.
Previous rumors and leaks point to several different sizes for the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and Galaxy Watch 4. We could see options ranging between 42mm and 46mm, while making use of 20mm watch straps. Powering these new smartwatches is expected to be Samsung’s new Exynos W920 chipset, along with decent 340mAh battery.
Other rumored specs include 5ATM water resistance, along with MIL-STD-810G certification for durability. Plus, these new smartwatches will provide all of the health tracking features that you would expect, including sleep tracking, an integrated heart rate monitor and blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring.
Samsung Unpacked will take place on August 11th, and will be streamed live via YouTube and Samsung’s website.
